3 Experts Share Tips for Protecting Yourself & Your Assets
Stroke, which can also profoundly impair judgment and decision-making, stands at No. 2.
“This year, 7.7 million new cases of dementia will be diagnosed, and 15 million people will suffer a stroke,” says CPA Jim Kohles, chairman of RINA accountancy corporation, (www.rina.com). “By the time dementia symptoms become apparent, their competence may already be affected. Strokes, as we know, can be tragically sudden.”
While many people carefully plan for retirement and what will become of their estate after death, too few provide for that middle ground – incapacity, adds attorney John Hartog of Hartog & Baer Trust and Estate Law, (www.hartogbaer.com).
“We should plan for incapacity, and if it never comes into play that’s wonderful,” says wealth management advisor Haitham “Hutch” Ashoo, CEO of Pillar Wealth Management, (www.pillarwm.com).
Incapacity planning ensures you’re able to speak for yourself in all decisions, from your medical care to financial affairs.
Here are three steps everyone should take, from the accounting, legal and financial perspectives.
All three experts stress the importance of having these provisions in place long before you think you’ll need them.
“Younger people have a higher chance of becoming disabled before they die, and they’re usually the people who haven’t planned for that at all,” says Kohles.
